Min. Nights Upon Request


Constructed from the enormous Fir timber beams of a Japanese temple, Trailside Nirvana combines the luxury of a Rocky Mountain retreat with the serene Zen of a tranquil Feng Shiu oasis. Designed by architect Michael Fuller and decorated by Laura Schwendt, every single detail has been thoughtfully provided for, making Trailside Nirvana one of the most unique and impressive homes in Telluride. Perched trailside at the Telluride Ski Resort, you’ll have plenty of privacy and peace with more than two acres of surrounding land. But you’ll still be close to all of the outdoor adventures you crave— including direct access to Upper Sundance. 

Welcome to Trailside Nirvana. The front façade of this home is glorious and impressive, with thick Fir beams and even a gong by the front door. A heated garage and patio areas make it easy to stay cozy even in the height of winter.

Once inside, gorgeous mirrored statues welcome you into the great room, where you’ll find a sunken living space with multiple sofas and breathtaking mountain views. Trailside Nirvana also includes an eclectic array of modern sculptures and artwork. Up a couple of stairs lies the formal dining area, complete with a spacious circular table and a stone fireplace. Just around the corner lies a secondary living space with several leather armchairs, a sofa, and an HDTV. Trailside Nirvana also features a third living space that’s an inviting media room with a large, velvety soft sofa and a huge HDTV that’s ideal for a family movie night in with a big bowl of popcorn. The HDTV is also equipped with a gaming system for video game fans.

In the chef-inspired kitchen, natural wood cabinets feature gleaming glass fronts and are topped with granite countertops. An oval-shaped island provides plenty of workspaces as well as some casual bar stool seating. Premier appliances include an impressive gas range, wall oven, large refrigerator, dishwasher, and a microwave. Everything you need to prepare breakfast for your crew before hitting the trails is here— and there’s even a chilled sparkling water dispenser.

Trailside Nirvana features four lovely bedroom suites spread out throughout the home— allowing for plenty of privacy for everyone in your group. The first bedroom suite includes a luxe king-size bed and a spacious en-suite bathroom that features a step-up style soaking tub and a separate shower. There’s also a dedicated office space. The second bedroom suite features a king-size bed and an attached full bathroom. In the third bedroom suite, there’s a king-size bed with a rugged leather headboard and another full en-suite bathroom— this one with double vanities. The fourth and final bedroom is a fun bunk room for the kids, with a double bed and two twin-over-twin-size bunk beds, as well as another attached full bathroom.

Trailside Nirvana also boasts a huge mud room with plenty of space to stow all your gear and a large laundry room with two washers and two dryers. A huge bonus is the state-of-the-art oxygen concentration system in all four bedrooms that greatly assists with altitude acclimatization. When you’re ready to head out and immerse yourself in the beauty and excitement of the Rocky Mountains, there are several ski runs and hiking trails right outside your door. And when you return, the large outdoor hot tub is the ideal spot to relax while you soak your soar muscles and sip a glass of wine. Trailside Nirvana is a flawless spot for you to call home for your next Rocky Mountain getaway.
